April's been a busy month! I have a lot of music that I've written recently, and more yet to write this week. Towards the beginning of April I was writing music for a Taize service we were having at St. Mark's. Taize is a monastic tradition from France that uses Latin texts and a very acoustic and intimate style of music. Anyway, after getting the music written, copies made and the musicians rehearsed, the service went very well. In fact, so many of the people liked it that Fr Scott says we'll be doing another Taize service again. I'm looking forward to it.
Then, last week I began writing music for a worship retreat that my mother is organizing for her church. I like the songs I've written so far, and maybe I'll post a few of them on this website when I'm done. I'll be finishing all of the songs and recordings of the songs this week.
Also, I'm beginning to get myself, my fellow musicians and my students ready for my Perry Project Spring Recital on May 14th. I think it will be an even better concert than the one in December, so I'm really looking forward to it. I really like the music that we're doing.
And, on top of these things I'm busy keeping the Mesa City Band going until the end of our season in May. Our final concert of the season is May 2nd at Three Fountains Resort.
It's good to be busy! Anyway, I hope to get some more of my compositions up soon.
